Octopus appetizer was great first time we we at here we ordered two orders.sushi rolls are small. Wine is generic and one choice offered. Second time we went octopus was extremely salty, wonton soup was in heavy beef broth and duck curry tasted of cinnamon....Red wine was generic snd tasteless. Just not got us.More

Two straight times our itder was incorrect when given to Uber Ears driver for delivery. Items missing. Salad but no ginger dressing. Calls to them simply direct you to Uber Eats to send driver back meaning eat cold food later. Not their problem.

Located in the heart of Haile Plantation, this place was busy on a Friday night, but yet there seemed to be an abundance of young people working at the restaurant. I ordered two sushi rolls which were average by sushi standards but I felt were...overpriced. Our server was nice but overall this place falls prey to what happens a lot in Haile: the prices are inflated just because it’s Haile Plantation.More

My two teenage daughters stopped in to order boba tea for takeout. The cashier charged them $15 and their tea was terrible and we had to throw both drinks away. The cashier should be ashamed of himself!

PHENOMENAL sushi and top notch customer service! We enjoy this restaurant above all the rest in Jacksonville, FL! The sushi is superb and very fresh. They are absolutely fantastic and go above and beyond for their customers……especially their outstanding manager, BRAN! He’s the BEST and...can do any type of catering service you desire!!! A truly great experience every time! Thank you Bran and they’re lucky to have you!!More

Anna was a great server but maybe taking care of too many tables? We enjoyed our lobster roll, and bao bun. The sunomono salad was tasty but the octopus was so tough, so I just left it in the glass. Hubby's pork fried rice was...average. Great job avoiding cross contamination for his shellfish allergy! Thanks.More

Sometime tripadvisor's rankings of restaurants tell you more about the rankers than the actual restaurants. This is a good example. Really great fresh food but ranked below some awful chains. It should be in the top 10.

I have loved dining in or taking out sushi from here until recently. The quality of the food is still excellent. However getting your food can be a marathon. Last night we ordered 5 rolls and a salad to go. We were told it would...be 40 minutes which was OK since it was a Saturday night. The wait was 1 hour and 40 minutes. Once home we found we were missing 1 roll and had no dressing on the salad. While we waited, we watched families arrive, eat, and leave. While I don’t mind waiting for great food, I do mind my order being ignored while others are served.More

After being disappointed with this place in the past, I decided to give it another try being in the area and hungry (and hearing great things). Take-out took forever, over an hour...just to get my order wrong. They forgot my soup and spicy mayo, which...I paid for. The rolls are mostly rice and fell apart! what a rip-off. The female server, who I think was the Manager, was quite rude. You can tell the staff seemed overwhelmed and probably hate their jobs. Other customers seemed annoyed with the wait/take-out times. Definitely a tough night for this place. I won't be coming here again, that's for sure.More

Four of us ordered 4 sushi rolls, 2 salads, a soup, an entree and a kids meal. I ordered teriyaki shrimp and my son ordered teriyaki chicken for the kids meal, sprite for his drink, waters for the rest of us. His chicken was cold...when it was brought out, and then a plate of teriyaki chicken for me came out and it was also cold. Because I was focused on getting the meals heated up, I didn't realize until after I ate that it wasn't what I ordered. I ordered the shrimp. My son's sprite never came, so we had to ask for that. I also really hated having to choose my tip amount on the handheld device with the server watching over me. Then I got no receipt, so I don't even know if I was charged correctly. $75 for 3 adults and a kid, too pricey for the service.More

Our first experience with Volcanic. I ordered the shrimp and lobster curry and the seafood was perfectly cooked and delicious. Roni ordered the duck and said it was perfect. We arrived about 5, well before things got busy, so service was quick and pleasant. Wait...time for food was reasonable. Prices are on the high end side for oriental cuisine, but well worth it. We split the green tea cheesecake for dessert and it was uniquely flavorful. No complaints at all, and we will certainly return.More

I went about a year ago and it was pretty good! Since it had been a while, we decided to try it while we were in town. Starting off, yes it was the weekend, but it took a long time for someone to greet us...at the table. There appeared to be arguing over who our server would be, (the place is small so you can hear everything). First: The food's pricey for the quality. We had Son Special appetizer, which was good but took too long, (came after our entrees). The Ramen soup was sub-par at best, definetly store bought noodles and weird flavor to the pork. My friend had the Volcanic Salmon, it tasted freezer burn. we would've ordered sushi but were told sushi would "take an hour". The only food we enjoyed were the Green tea Cheesecake and Son Special. Second: Service, it was obvious the restaurant was overwhelmed. Our server was quite fake and pushy as far as trying to sell us more food. Other guests waiting for their food seemed upset as well. it looks like you guys need better training and/or more staff. Servers should be personable and professional. Overall, it was mediocre at best and expensive for a sub-par experience. We won't return.More
